Sorry about not meeting you tonight Sciler/Akumi. I meant to, but I found a game with Danger Girl in it, helped a friend of hers level (Lysan) and I eventually lost track of time
I feel really bad about it.
But, I figure, I'll add my two cents to the conversation:
I feel that, if someone has invested, lets say, over 200 hours in a character, and they have that character erased either due to poor game code, or an exploit employed within the game by a cheater/hacker/lamoid, it would be insane not for them to yell and whine.
Imagine if I lost Sheogorath. His clock is a few hours away from 300, and I even got my legit (Yes, legit) Inferno Bazooka back...
If I lost him, I...really have no idea what I'd do. Although it's safe to say it would involve lots of throwing of things, and the possible destruction of my Dreamcast. (Or whats left of my sanity, whatever comes first!)
People have a right to whine. It would be different, say, if their was a page in the manual with huge red lettering (Like Sciler's posts..hehe) that said: "DATA WILL BE RANDOMLY ERASED. DO NOT EXPECT SAVE GAME FUNCTIONALITY"
Thats why Sheo is semi-retired and Faydra now roams Puck 9
